What People are Saying

Hi Diane!

The videos look great! Honestly, the taco and fajita seasonings have looked a little unappetizing in the past so I really appreciate your work! These are going to help our listings a lot.
Talk to you soon,

Kathryn – KGK Companies

Why didn’t you tell me you are “my curated tastes”?

I found the website and made your ham and brioche muffins last week…OMG!
They are on the menu for tomorrow….

Williamsburg Whitehouse, Debbie owner

Your food pix with recipes on IG are really good stuff. Your food continues to look AMAZING…

Cordiali Saluti!”

That meal is the best thing that happened all weekend and I bought a Tesla today!

You are a dream to work with. Professional, timely, knowledgeable. You are a business person who gets it. You always do what you say you will do and you respond fast.”

Maryann R., Alaska Concierge

I’m so impressed by all the content! And that is separate from the beautiful design and artistic choices in fonts, layout, etc. (your website) Simply amazing.

I am blown away! You are the definition of resilience my friend.

Chris D., Little River, SC

Finally had a chance to make your French onion soup recipe. Absolutely delicious. And, I like the cheesy bread on the side. Thanks for sharing your passion with us!”


Diane, this is just amazing. Everything you feature is just divine. I want to cook all your recipes. Since I do a baked pear recipe, your baked pear recipe jumped out at me. I wish I could have sent you twice as many oranges. You surely need more to do all these great ideas.”

Monica, Owner Wicky-Up Ranch, CA


So I made the shrimp, summer corn and tomato salad before I knew it came from your blog. The BEST (but I did cook the corn under the broiler without charring it – to me it is a cleaner taste than raw) It was a fabulous entree in this heat.”

Liz, Kate Stanton Inn

“I saw your kitchen aid reel and looked at the recipe as it was playing and was like, “WHAT!” Diane Ringler IS @mycuratedtastes! STOP! Replay. Pause. YUP!!! It was like finding out Clark Kent IS Superman! I’m sure in the beginning I ‘knew’ it was you but that info was filed away in my brain somewhere. As you’ve posted, and interacted/commented with my posts, a relationship of culinary appreciation was formed… at least on my end:-) and I just ‘knew this person’ as @mycuratedtastes and truly enjoy your content. Gosh, the amount of screenshots I have of your posts is shocking. “Oh wow, I gotta try that one!” is often my inner monologue.

Anyway, Mind Blown before my second cuppa kawfee:-) Thanks for making my Monday, friend!”
